Hull   1 - 2   Portsmouth

Hull 1-2 Portsmouth

Hull 1-2 Portsmouth

Portsmouth shrugged off their latest off-pitch troubles to register their third consecutive league victory.

Pompey edged a lively opening and David Nugent blasted a 25-yard shot against the bar before he raced on to John Utaka's pass to fire them ahead.

It was 2-0 just after the break when Greg Halford smashed a fine 20-yard free-kick into the bottom corner.

The home side pulled a goal back when Nick Barmby headed Robert Koren's cross into the top corner but Pompey held on.

Hull, who have now only taken two points from their last five games, poured forward in the final 25 minutes and went close to earning a draw through Rowan Vine's 20-yard shot and another long-range strike from substitute Jay Simpson.

But Pompey keeper Jamie Ashdown was equal to both efforts and Steve Cotterill's men who are hopeful of securing their future after yet another financial crisis, kept their nerve to close out the win.

A pulsating start saw both sides create chances with Koren's early shot and Barmby's header held by Ashdown while at the other end Utaka's drilled shot was caught by Tigers keeper Matt Duke.

Nugent then took centre stage, rattling the bar with a fine effort and heading just wide from Liam Lawrence's corner.

But the former England striker was not to be denied and he broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time when he collected Utaka's clever pass and ran into the penalty area to plant a right-footed shot into the bottom corner.

Pompey's second arrived just after the interval when Hull defender Daniel Ayala was deemed to have fouled Dave Kitson and Halford arrowed the free-kick into the bottom corner from 20 yards for his first competitive goal since April 2009.

Nugent, twice, and Utaka squandered further chances before Hull deservedly reduced the deficit in the 62nd minute through Barmby's excellent header.

But although Hull pressed for an equaliser and had plenty of pressure, they were held at bay by a resolute Pompey side.
